My friend and neighbor Finn lost a beloved Redbud tree some time ago and kindly gave me some forks. I took the best one and made him this. I wanted to show as much of the original wood as possible but also some bling. a bacote cap with a brass pin I just removed what wasn't needed and left what felt good using just files and sandpaper and a vice mounted on a milk crate. Sanded to 320 because I wanted to feel the grain. Three coats of BLO homemade beeswax then six coats of Tru-oil with 0000 steel wool in between. Also gave him three extra TG bands I made too. I concentrated on a smooth epoxy line(G-flex) and final finish. A huge thanks to Master Flipgun for the tips and instruction on finishing! In return my friend gave/traded me some fly-fishing flies he tied and I mean a lot that I will show next. He is a master in his art! Thanks for looking.
